Lyman 245 grain 429421 bullet with 11.0 grains of Blue Dot in Remington 44 special cases fired in a 6" Taurus 44 magnum revolver. Last data I got was 980fps with 10.5 grains. I'm assuming this load was going at about 1050 fps.

I always wondered how the puzstes out there could put a hole in their equipment. Well, it was a valuable learning experience.

They really should come that way from the factory. It would save all of us the time we spend trying to shoot them. :neener:

I'm curious, how far away do you set a chronograph if you're shooting a pistol?

WOW ! none of you guys have any repair skills ?

Have you guys ever heard of Duct tape ?
It can fix anything just a little strip here and a little strip there and WaLa !

It is fixed and ready to be shot again !

Shooting Chorny has a trade-in program and they'll accept shot-up chronographs.
But your money is better spent on a CED M2.

They're more dangerous when they're wounded..... Yup, they are....But at least they don't have tusks.

That clearly shows why I didn't buy a chronograph that puts anything in danger's path but the screens.

"Shoot low Jethro, they're rid'n Shetlands!"

(Sorry - couldn't resist. ;) )

The general rule of thumb is to shoot over your chronograph at a minimum of around 5 to 7 feet for the average handgun, more if it is a magnum such as a .44 Mag, .454 Cas, etc. For a rifle, the chrono should be a minimum of 10 feet from the muzzle. The problem with shooting too close to the chrono is that the hypersonic gases can start the timer and the bullet will usually stop it as it passes the second screen. You will then get abnormally low velocity readings. If the gases both start and stop the timer, then you will get abnormally high readings. If you get strange readings, you are probably too close.

I'm thinking a 3/8" steel deflecter plate leaned up on the front of the crony might have saved it.

I know what you meant but the way your wrote it, a non-chrono person reading that may get the wrong idea. :D

Nice, but next time hit it in the COM. You got lucky but next time you may only wound it and it might charge you.

Oh you guys are too much. Seedtick, I just about fell out of the chair with your little ditty there. lol
I wonder though? What percentage of us actually shoot the chonos? I'd bet it'is high?

Why only one shot. If you hit it once I would have let er rip.

This thread should have come up last week, there was another member asking as to what kind of chrono to get. He really needed to see that photo! I wouldn't put anything with brains in front of a gun except a game animal or smart bad guy! I shot mine too, shot it in the eyes! Eyes are cheap brains ain't!

It only took one shot because it was a 44. Now a 9mm would have taken quite a few more. 10mm and it would have been atomized. :neener:

If you shot it with a .380, it would still be alive. :D

This brings up a good question, What do you suppose the minimum caliber firearm you would need to go hunt chronys with is?

i killed one with 30 tokarev, but it too 2 shots to finish it. overpenetration, not expending enuf energy in the target vital zone.

I wonder has anyone thought of taking the wire bits off a chrono and moving them away from the expensive bits of the chrono so that you can only shoot the "cheap" parts? You may notice I know very little about how a chrono works, so maybe it's just not possible? Or maybe it's been done already and I am a dumb-a$$? ;)
